Published in the Issaquah Press on May 31, 2000


This week we continue our reflection on the old locomotives that powered the area’s early logging industry. In this shot, the High Point Mill Co.’s Climax locomotive approaches the photographer on the north face of Tiger Mountain. On the left next to the spar tree is a steam loading donkey engine. To the right of the locomotive is a steam yarding donkey engine.
